Does anyone know what the story with the suncoast gas station in Orlando by the airport. For over a year now they where suppose to post a sign that was visable from the highway with their prices clearly listed. They where also suppose to be fined every day the sign wasn't posted? The state of Florida and the city of Orlando is clearly asleep at the switch allowing this crook to get away with ripping off Floridians as well as many tourist who are leaving this state with a bad taste in their mouths. As of today their prices are $5.79, $5.89 and $5.99. WHAT A DISGRACE.

They don't care. The fines they are paying are cheaper than the losses they say they will incur if they post and/or lower their prices.

I have noticed a very small sign there once in awhile, but seems to have disappeared again

The sad thing is that if you drive up another half-mile on semoran/436, you'll find legitimate gas stations selling gasoline at the normal market price (7/11 and another one).

The only way suncoast and the station across the street from it will shut down is if tourists stopped getting ensnared by the trap. People need to know that they only need to drive another half mile up the road to find a fair gas station.

Disney prices are clearly posted before you buy a ticket or whatever else you might be buying while at the park. Granted they are expensive, but there's no scam being played on the tourist. The tourist sees the price of a ticket at Disney and buys it if they want. This slimeball that owns this gas station refuses to post a visable sign that is required by law, because he knows that NO ONE would buy his gas. Very poor comparison.

There's signs posted clearly now, have been for about 3 months now. And they posted right where you put in your credit card, too. And last I checked there's several gas station's around mco.

The small signs that they have posted by the pumps are not meeting what's required by law. Just so you know what the law is.... A large enough sign must be posted that can be viewed from the highway. This has never been done by this gas station. The owner of this station has been deceiving the public for at least 8 years that I know of. And as of today there still isn't a sign and he's violating the law and something should have been done about it years ago.
